WorldView – 3

WorldView-3 was deployed on the orbit on 13th of August 2014. It delivers imagery of the highest spatial resolution that is available for commercial use – 0.31 m. Images are captured from the height of 617 km in panchromatic band and 28 more bands! 8 of them are multi-spectral, 8 of short wave infrared SWIR, and 12  CAVIS bands: which help in reducing the influence of atmosphere (fog, dust, snow etc.). WorldView-3 is classified as neither a multispectral or hyperspectral, but rather a super-spectral satellite. Time interval between next acquisitions are typically less than 1 day. During that time the sensor is able to image up to 680 000 sq km.
